Admissions Policy
Quality childcare services are available to families in the community without regard to race, color, creed, religion, national origin, or ancestry. 

A Waiting List of children eligible for enrollment is maintained at the Child Development Center. Applications for the CDC Waiting List are accepted only during the months of June and December. Enrollment of children from the Waiting List, ages 2 years through 5 years (who are not yet in kindergarten), is contingent upon available slots.

In accordance with Title 22, Section 31221, children who are physically, mentally, and/or emotionally challenged will be accepted and retained after enrollment if it is determined that (a) the Center is able to meet the individual needs of the child, and that (b) there will be no adverse effect upon other children, whether through direct behavior of the child or through requiring staff time needed for the group. Ongoing assessments will determine whether each child’s needs are being met by our program.

Enrollment Process
Waiting list applicants are contacted when there are openings for enrollment. An interview is scheduled with the Instructor/Coordinator or other designated person. This is usually in conjunction with the child’s classroom visit, required a week before the actual enrollment. The classroom visit is for the benefit of both child and parent. It provides an opportunity for parents and child to become acquainted with the teachers and the new environment. The enrollment packet is reviewed to make sure it is complete and that the child’s immunizations are current.
